STAR Catholic students have brought their own creativity to a message of bus safety.

St. Thomas Aquinas Roman (STAR) Catholic School students were asked to create posters and short videos for the message of Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful. The message is meant to help students know the expectations when it comes to riding the school bus to and from school, but also on school field trips.

Grades 1 to 6 participated in the poster contest with one prize of a gift card per grade awarded throughout the Division’s eight elementary schools. STAR Catholic’s junior and senior high students were invited to submit videos with the winners being awarded a prize of gift cards. Honorable mentions were also awarded to each school.

“It was tremendous to see this sort of buy-in from our students,” said Dr. Troy Davies, Superintendent. “The way the students took this message and made it their own in posters and videos shows they truly understand what it means and how important it is to be safe, be responsible, be respectful.”

STAR Catholic received a grant for the Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful campaign from Safe Fleet, a company that provides safety products for fleet vehicles worldwide. The grant will also be used to develop signage based on the campaign for buses contracted by STAR Catholic Schools.

The winning posters and videos will be used in ongoing campaigns to remind and educate students the importance of bus safety and to Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful.

The prizes were awarded to the winning students at school assemblies in February.
